  1. They're not UEFA rules. UEFA introduced the first Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations in 2010. Many governing bodies and leagues followed suit, with the EFL introducing their own FFP regulations in April 2012. In 2014, representatives of the EFL’s 24 Championship clubs voted in favour of a new set of regulations - the Championship Profitability and Sustainability Rules - that came into effect from Season 2016/17.
  2. Can’t make head nor tail of that article. What is it actually saying and what is the 28 March cut off date from?
  3. All turning a bit Lucian Freud but I’ll be there with my easel and sausage dog
  4. Thanks for the heads up mate. Might give Steelowl's friend's sister a miss, specially if she's one of them that nicks your poems and hides em in her coffin
  5. As I understand it the Pre-Raphaelites got done because they tried to roll International Gothic, early Renaissance and High Renaissance into the same accounting period. Quite right too, the medievalising bar stewards. Has your friend got a sister?
  6. I've seen some talk of reforms to the EFL governing structure, but nothing yet about any changes to P&S. EFL Chief executive Shaun Harvey recently announced his resignation and will step down this summer. Apparently 19 of the 24 Championship clubs wanted him out. The big Championship clubs want more of a say in the appointment of Harvey's successor and also want each club to have a vote on key issues, weighted by club size. At the moment the nine member EFL board of directors takes most decisions. The board is currently made up of three appointees from the EFL, three representatives of the Championship clubs, two from League One and one from League Two. So I guess there will be an opportunity to reform P&S while they are at it. They'd have to move sharpish over the summer to agree changes though.
  7. Dante Gabriel Rossetti's Pre-Raphaelites deserved everything they got if you ask me mate Trying to return to the intense colours and complex compositions of Quattrocento Italian art my arse
  8. The new rules and financial limits only came into effect in Season 2016/17. Its not like they're from the 19th century
  9. What? - you mean they decided to dock points from Brum with immediate effect but next season for us, Villa and Frank Lampard's Derby Can't see that being right
  10. Yet just a coupe of weeks back Gary Monk's Birmingham were complaining that they were being singled out and treated like guinea pigs.
  11. Rumors about the date for the Disciplinary Commission hearing for Brum have been circulating for yonks. Never heard anything about possible hearings for Derby, Villa & ourselves. But IF its true it makes sense that they'd be heard at the same time to allow clubs the same number of games to react.
  12. The P&S assessments now take place every year, following submission of financial data on 1 March. That means for the current year (referred to under the rules as year 'T') clubs have 9 months of confirmed profit and loss and submit an estimate for the remaining 3 months to end of accounting year. The year T figures are added to those of the past 2 years (T -1 and T -2). At the start of the new season T -2 becomes T -3 and is no longer taken into account. T -1 becomes T -2 and T becomes T -1. There's no way that B'ham have escaped from this and somehow cleared their past losses. But I agree, a 9 point deduction that has no implications for promotion or relegation is not much of a penalty.
  13. If only. There's no fixed limit on number of points that can be deducted and basically unlimited 'other' penalties. A Commission may issue a decision to: · order a party to do or refrain from doing anything; · order a specific performance; · make a declaration on any matter to be determined; · issue a reprimand or warning as to the future conduct of a party; · order the payment of compensation to The League, any Club, any other club, Player or other person; · order a suspension of membership of The League; · order a deduction of points; · impose a financial penalty payable to The League; · recommend expulsion from membership of The League; · order a withdrawal or loss of benefit otherwise available to members of The League e.g. basic award or ladder payment; · impose an embargo on registration of Players; · order any other sanction as the Disciplinary Commission may think fit; and · order that interest be payable on any sums awarded under this Regulation for such period and at such rates as the Disciplinary Commission thinks fit.
  14. Phones will be engaged with every other b*gger trying to do the same thing
